Equity and Inclusion
NAAEE is committed to advancing equity and inclusion in the environmental education field. Throughout the conference, we focused on race, justice, and sustainability in our plenary sessions and several workshops. In addition, at least 15 percent of our concurrent sessions explored strategies and programs that help diversify our audiences as well as our workforce, build cultural competence, support environmental justice, engage with new audiences, forge new and lasting partnerships, honor traditional knowledge, and increase our reach and relevance throughout society. Affinity groups, including the Environmental Professionals of Color (EPOC) and the Queer Environmental Education Network (QEEN), also held meetings.
